Introducing the CMA's Digital Market Unit
Digital markets have come to play a central role in our personal, economic and social lives. The Digital Markets Unit has been established within the CMA to promote greater competition and innovation in digital markets. We’re looking for talented individuals with a broad range of work backgrounds and experience, to enrich the capability and culture of the DMU team as well as the wider organisation.
What is the role of the DMU?
The role of the newly created Digital Markets Unit (DMU) is to promote greater competition and innovation in digital markets, in the interests of consumers. The DMU will oversee and enforce a new pro-competition regime for a small group of the most powerful digital firms – those with Strategic Market Status (SMS). The DMU will have powers to request data and information from firms to help it investigate firms’ conduct.
Why join the CMA’s Digital Markets Unit?
We will offer you the opportunity: • to shape how the CMA thinks about the regulation of digital markets, and in doing so use your skills for the public good, protecting consumers and keeping markets competitive. • to understand in detail how big tech firms operate, with the chance to learn and build substantial knowledge and expertise in digital markets • to be part of an inclusive workplace where colleagues are supported in balancing their roles with wider caring responsibilities
